The Patch has become a useless site good only for generic advertising of silly things such as the Strawberry festival and surveys on woman's safety. It was once a forum to provide local news that is not covered by the leftwing Newsday. What a shame. No more exposes on Long Beach corruption. No more warnings on over zealous developers ruining the community. No more insight into the LB School district's raping of the taxpayer. On and on it can go.
